What Kinds of Mushrooms are Best for Stuffing?

When making appetizer-sized stuffed mushrooms, large white button mushrooms or cremini mushrooms are most commonly used. If you want larger stuffed mushrooms, you can use portobello mushrooms. When buying mushrooms, look for ones that are firm and plump because this indicates freshness. Mushrooms need to be cleaned thoroughly before stuffing. A soft brush or a dishcloth can be used to remove dirt from the mushroom cap. Once cleaned, mushrooms should be given a rinse under cold water and allowed to dry before being stuffed.

  • Fresh mushrooms may be stored in a plastic bag for 3 to 4 days in your refrigerator.
  • Purchase mushrooms without any blemishes because they will last longer if you aren’t going to cook with them the first day.

  • 9 ounces mushrooms
  • 6 ounces clams drained
  • 1 tablespoon green onion chopped fine
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon oregano leaves
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon Romano cheese finely grated
  • 2 tablespoons mozzarella cheese finely grated for stuffing
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese finely grated for garnish
  • 1/4 cup butter melted


  • Wash the mushrooms, remove the stems, and pat dry. Save the stems for another recipe. Drain the clams and reserve the liquid.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together clams, green onion, minced garlic, garlic salt, 1 tablespoon soft butter, and oregano. Add egg, breadcrumbs, and clam juice and mix everything together. Stir the cheeses into the clam stuffing until well blended.
  • Place the clam mixture in each mushroom cavity and make it into a small mound. You should be able to stuff between 8 and 12 mushrooms depending on the size of the mushrooms. Place the mushrooms in a lightly-oiled baking dish. Pour 1/4 cup melted butter over the mushrooms.
  • Cover and place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 35 - 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the mushrooms with freshly grated mozzarella cheese. Pop them back in the oven until the cheese is just slightly melted.
  • Garnish with freshly diced parsley.

    I liked the recipe, but in my opinion, it did not taste exactly like Olive Garden mushrooms because of too much breadcrumbs. They weren’t just as juicy. Olive Garden mushrooms have way less breadcrumbs. I only put 3 table spoons instead of half a cup, and it was too much!

    Absolutely delicious. Always been a fan of the Olive Garden stuffed mushrooms until they recently changed the recipe and in my opinion are horrible. This recipe definitely reminds me of the original delicious version!

      It does say a 6 oz can of clams, so assuming juice drained from that can. This juice is added with the egg and breadcrumbs as listed in directions. I made these several times and they are great. I didn’t change a thing ??

    I could only find 10 ounce cans of clams. I doubled the recipe and included the stems, chopped finely, in the stuffing. My wife raved about them, so it was a success.

    I made a double batch. 10 with clams and 10 with crawfish meat. With the crawfish I used seafood stock for the clam juice, Old Bay for the oregano and regular bread crumbs for the Italian style. Could not tell you which disappeared first because I didn’t get any by the time I got outside to join in!

    I made these stuffed mushrooms for my parents 50th anniversary party! They disappeared so fast! I think I found the majority of the appetizers for their party on this site! Our food was so good it was gone so fast!

    which amount of butter do over the mushrooms last the 1/4c amount or the 1 tbsp
    You use the melted butter at the end, and the softened butter to mix with.
